++ Well it's been a looooonggg week over here. Of the last 12 days, Ben has worked 10 of them. Between both of his jobs and school, we are lucky if we get to see him more than an hour a day. So I've been feeling pretty sorry for myself and TV binging after Everett goes to bed. I'm just gonna say it, Grey's anatomy, of course has a very special place in my heart, but The Good Wife and Parenthood are the best shows on TV and don't even get me started on the fact that this is Parenthood's last season (don't worry I'm part of a letter writing campaign) #Netflixpleasebuyparenthood
++I started another whole30, the same thing I did during the summer. It's going pretty good so far except I have to take alternate routes home sometimes so I don't drive by Swig, and delete all the doughnut places I followed on instagram. My advice for whole 30 if you are doing it or thinking of doing it is this MEAL PLAN, or else you're starving, lazy, feel like you have nothing to eat and then cheat. Also eat lots of apples, they make me feel so full, and don't sweat the small stuff like 1 tbsp. of soy sauce or something like that, it's not a big deal, don't buy all new weird ingredients.
++ OMG the Bachelor, we have to talk about it. So I really like Chris, I think he is a good down to earth guy and even though he has no upper lip, he is definitely attractive. Well in order for me to continue to like Chris I keep having to tell myself that the producers are forcing him to do things like keep the psychopath that is Ashley S on another week, and forcing him to keep his hoodie unzipped below his nips and take woodsy showers outside.
Of course, like the rest of America, I love Britt but I have this feeling something is going to go wrong #toogoodtobetrue. I think I would like Whitney if her voice didn't make me want to hack my ears off. I also like Megan (despite the super weird helmet thing) and Jade (but she isn't getting much screen time) but my favorite is Kelsey (the widow with the rocking bod) she seems the most normal and sweet.
I do not like the 'crossfit is life' chick, the alien frizzy single mom, or the 'virgin' jasmine kardashian.
Guys, I know it's trash, but it is so freaking entertaining. Ps- Ben pointed out that Ashley S. looks like a female version of Steve Carrell and now I can't unsee it.
++I know I am a little late to the bandwagon, but I am totally on now. The podcast Serial has gone major viral and is sooo addicting. If you live under a rock and haven't heard of it yet, go listen to the episodes (they are free) and decide for yourself whether he is innocent or guilty. I am only half way through but I think he is innocent. I really cannot imagine a fate worse than being put away for something you didn't do. It seems the internet is divided on whether he did it or not. SERIALsly go listen.
++I got Everett black play-doh for Christmas thinking I was being all hipster and stuff but it is kind of depressing making hearts and stuff out of black play-doh, also it get under his fingernails and it looks like he is homeless. Speaking of playing with Everett, he is really incapable of independent play. I'm talking like won't even play for 30 seconds by himself during a day. Don't get me wrong, I love playing with him but I can't even make breakfast or put in a load of laundry while he entertains himself. He loves playing with his blocks or trains as long as I am literally touching him, he won't even play an ipad game or anything without me right next to him. I know this is part of first child syndrome, but I am going a little crazy. Any tips moms?
ANYWAYS cheers to the long weekend, Ben has it off and I feel like we need to take advantage and hit Vegas or something, we will probably just watch movies and vacuum and stuff! WOOHOO
